 The Stadium at Rosemont 

5/27/17 - After surrendering 4 runs in the first 4 innings of this 9 inning game, the young Slammer pitching staff backed by solid defense kept the Bandits off the board for the final 5 innings and surrendered only 7 hits to the Bandits for the entire game. Taylor Edwards (U of IL '19) pitched a perfect 7th, 8th, and 9th inning. The outfield of Leslie Sims, Kelly Welsh, and Jessica Rio was outstanding and the rotating infield defense of Jenny Behan, Michaela Schlattman, Alexis Solak, Julianne Rurka, Mary Connolly and Stephanie Lombardo made all the plays to keep the Slammers in the game. And many thanks to Illini catcher Emily Brodner who was flawless behind the plate. Also special thanks to Western, IL phenomenal young pitcher Emily Ira as well as UIC's fine pitcher Allie Trudeau for jumping on board with short notice. Great job Slammers!

The Indiana Slammers would like to thank the Chicago Bandit organization for hosting this exhibition game that kicks off the regular season for both teams. 

*Incorrect as to innings pitched and runs allowed by each Slammer pitcher. Allie Trudeau 3 innings (3 runs 2 earned) , followed by Emily Ira 3 innings (1 run) with Taylor Edwards pitching final 3 perfect innings.
